How to Layer for Fall in Florida
Fall is slowing but surly making its South Florida. After two weeks of terenchal downpours, we are finally seeing what looks like the beginning of sweater weather. While the middle of the day is still very warm, the morning and evening is much breezy and less humid. I’m very happy that I can start saying sayanora to summer and welcome in my favorite season.
I love fall because the weather starts to change in Florida and my favorite holiday, Halloween, takes place in the fall. It’s filled with other festivities such as Zombie Crawls, Fright Nights and the return of the West Palm Beach Green Market. It’s also my favorite excuse for shopping for transitional pieces in my wardrobe.
Fall means the beginning of layered clothing. Layers are a great way to look chic and stylish, while staying warm in cooler weather. I know there is a common misconception that it’s not possible to layer in Florida because it doesn’t get cold enough, but I beg to differ. You can definitely rock some Florida-friendly layering without having a heat stroke; you just have to know a few tricks.
How to layer for fall in Florida:
- Layer with lightweight fabrics, such as cotton or a cotton blend.
- Wear the lightest layer closest to your skin, such as a cami, and heavier layers on top. This will give you the option to shed layers if you get too warm.
- If you live in a warmer climate (such as Florida) try layering with vests and sweaters instead of heavy coats and jackets.
- Don’t over do it! A maximum of 3 layers is all you need.
- Show contrast by mixing prints, textures and cuts for an added dose of style.
